Hit and Run: WPT Overlay And Updates; Lock Poker Closes?

Dustin Gouker : April 19th, 2015


The big World Poker Tour event wasn’t quite big enough. And Lock Poker appears to have closed its doors. It’s all in our daily wrap-up of the world of poker, the Hit and Run.


The World Poker Tour Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown has completed its registration, and the tournament with a $5 million guaranteed prize pool featured an overlay of $275,000. There were more than 1,400 entries, and about 500 of those remain in day 2 today. Notables doing well include Jason Mercier, Brian Hastings, Keven Stammen, Kevin Eyster, Chris Moorman, Shannon Shorr, and Jonathan Duhamel among others. Live updates here.

Locked down

Apparnetly, Lock Poker has shut its doors, pretty much to the surprise of no one, at this point. Lock hasn’t paid out any withdrawals in forever, and this move was more of a formality than anything else. Is anyone seeing their money back from the debacle? We’re guessing not.
